Version Control by Example – book by Eric Sink
A _GOOD_ book on how distributed version control systems work and why they’re different from (and better than) the preceding generation of version control. I helped edit this (barely) but mostly I just think it’s a good book. It also hawks Eric’s new product… but that’s OK and it is NOT just advertising.

MF Bliki: VersionControlTools
Martin Fowler surveys the version control landscape. He says there are only 3 decent options today: Subversion, Mercurial, or Git. Subversion is best for non-distributed (which is fine for many uses), between Mercurial and Git, Git appeals to those who like to play w/ tools and Mercurial to those who want to get the work done.

PEP 374 -- Migrating from svn to a distributed VCS
Python's evaluation of distributed version control systems. I consider this THE reference on DVCS comparisons because (1) they documented what they were doing very well (objectives, tests and results), (2) it was done objectively rather than by a proponent of one system or another, (3) it was tested with a good-sized repository. And I really trust these guys -- I know that they know what they're doing. They chose mercurial.

Subversion's biggest hole: Ned Batchelder
Ned complains about the lack in Subversion of a server-side way to ignore all files with a certain extension (wherever they may reside). I don't get why the client-side feature won't do. He also (to my surprise) thinks someday git will take over.
